Hello, and greetings to all....I just signed up as a new member this month. I live in Edgewater Florida, and have quite a collection of BSA`s. My `old stand by` regular rider is a 1970 Thunderbolt. I have 50 or 60 unit constuction BSA`s in various stages of completion, and quite a few A10`s. We were a public business here in Edgewater for quite a few years, doing business as Olde Iron Cycle works. I have since shut down the business and created a home shop. At 68 years of age I am retired from 33 years in the trucking business as an owner/operator, but my BSA experience spans over 50 Years. As a teenager I began to frequent Dan`s Cycle Shop, Staten Island N.Y. (`Dapper Dan` Costa as he was known in flat track racing circles). I bought a used 1968 Lightning in 1969, and a brand new blue 1970 Lightning the following year. I traveled with Dan to many flat track races in NY,NJ and PA in the 70`s, and did a 10 year or so stint as an amateur road racer in the mid to late 70`s. Had lots of fun racing a production 650 and a modified 750 BSA twin at Loudon NH, Thompson Ct. Bridgehampton NY, Pocono, Charlotte, and Daytona with AAMRR, WERA, and AMA CCS. Currently I can be found here most weekdays in my shop. We are usually building or rebuilding a couple of bikes, and sell a few now and then. If you are in the Daytona area, look us up and stop by.
cheers,Bob

Hey - I know that name Dan Costa. Also seems like I knew another guy from Staten Island named Dan Tito. But I might be wrong. It's been a long time. Also, seems like someone sent me a photo from Dan Costa's shop taken years ago, probably the same time period you reference. Glad you chose to sign up as a member of OVBSAOC, and look forward to meeting you. By the way, where is Edgewater? Is that south of Daytona a bit?

Welcome to the OVBSAOC, Bob! We are honored to have such an experienced and distinguished individual such as yourself on Board. Please consider posting pictures of your ongoing projects. We look forward to hearing further from you.
Yes, the Avatar image is an actual picture of me - back when I was younger and handsomer.
